I ordered Genealogy 101: How to Trace Your Family's History and Heritage and Handybook for Genealogists: United States of America almost 2 months ago. Today I received notice that Amazon has to delay shipping AGAIN. Arrrrg. I'm going to have to find them someplace else...

Anyone else having probs getting the new edition of Handybook?

{ I really must go over to the welcome thread and introduce myself }

I'm in Canada and and added a link to Chapters (chapters.indigo.ca) in my find a book list on the left hand side of the work page, so all it took was a click to find the order information for Genealogy 101 from your touchstone above. The status note states "Temporarily Unavailable to Order".

I mention the find a book feature because I found it most useful toggling back and forth, when ordering an English local history book recently. Amazon.ca would charge shipping, amazon.com did not, but only to an American address, abebooks.com provided the price and shipping from the British bookseller in American dollars, not sterling. I'm in Canada. The bookseller did not answer my query, so I added abebook.co.uk to find a book list, and found that indeed the abebook American and UK data bases are different, the UK site has more booksellers, and I found a used copy even cheaper.

{ in case I don't get over to the other thread sometime soon, thanks myshelves for your suggestion to add a surname when searching google books. It worked.}

I ditched my order at amazon.com and am going to go to Powell's sometime this week to see if they have what I'm looking for...
